Apple Pie Caramel Apples

These Apple Pie Caramel Apples are a must have every time we go to Disneyland. My college friend, Nathan, first introduced me to them when we visited Disney recently and they’ve instantly shot to the top of my Disney food list. Creamy caramel, tart apples, a cinnamon graham cracker crust, the combination is perfection! Plus they’re so cute! They’re a hit at any birthday party, Halloween bash or just a fun weekend treat.

Tips for Perfect Apple Pie Caramel Apples

  • First of all, you need to get good caramel. After trying a few cheaper varieties, I found Kraft caramel bits. They melt smoothly and you don’t have to spend an hour unwrapping caramels.
  • Granny Smith, Gala or McIntosh apples are my favorites for making caramel apples. They’re firm, tart and crisp. Perfect!
  • You can either go with melted white chocolate chips or white chocolate melting chocolates. The melting chocolates seem to get harder and chip off a little more but it all tastes the same.
  • For the “crust” you can either use cinnamon flavored graham crackers or you can get an actual pre-made pie crust, add a little cinnamon and sugar and process it in a food processor.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Scrub apples and dry with a dishcloth or paper towel. This is to get the wax coating off (if you REALLY want to get the wax off, drop them in boiling water for a few seconds and wipe dry).
  • Refrigerate apples for a few hours until they are nice and cold.
  • Melt caramel in the microwave (in a micvrowave-safe dish) for 30 seconds at a time until caramel is nice and melted or follow directions on package if using the Bits. If you are using un-wrapped caramels you can also put the caramels in a small crock pot on high heat until melted.
  • Place caramel apple sticks or popsicle sticks into the top of each apple and dip each apple into the caramel until fully coated, rotating the apple as needed. Let excess caramel drip off and them place on wax paper. Refrigerate at least 2-3 hours until caramel is completely cooled onto the apples.
  • In a food processor, process graham crackers (or pie crust) until well blended. If doing a pie crust, add a little cinnamon and sugar to the mixture. Place in a bowl and set aside.
  • Melt chocolate in a microwave-safe dish in the microwave until chocolate is just melted and there are no lumps. Dip each apple in the chocolate and allow chocolate to set up for a few seconds. When chocolate has set a little, roll the bottom half in processed graham cracker crumbs (or crust). Sprinkle entire apple with cinnamon and sugar and set aside.
  • Optional: Once the chocolate on the apples have set, roll each marshmallow in the chocolate and place on the apples to make “ears”. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and hold in place until set.

  1. What? Favored over churros? Gonna have to try these! (I’m also seriously considering a trip to Disneyland, thanks to you! Ha ha)

    1. haha We hope you go! Disneyland is the best 😀 If you go, use our coupon code to get some $$ off your trip (from GetAwayToday)! I am sure you will save enough to splurge on these AND churros 😉

    1. Pssst… I used to work at WDW in a confectionary location- if you really want them to taste like Disney apple’s use a Peter’s Caramel loaf! It’s a bit on the pricer side (around $25 on Amazon) but the ENTIRE loaf makes at least 2 dozen apples so if you don’t need to use the entire loaf vacuum seal it and save it for another batch!
